Today I wanted to share a quick technique for color correcting your photos. This is an easy way to make colors look more natural, especially on shots taken indoors.
Open your photo in Photoshop:
Select the image drop down menu > then adjustments > the curves:
Once the curves box pops up, select the eye dropper on the far right. This is your white balance eye dropper. Once selected, your mouse will turn into a little eye dropper and use it to click on something that should be white in the photo. I chose the "mini molly" sign:
If your colors are still looking a little off, select the eye dropper on the far left. This is your black balance eye dropper. Click on something in the photo that should be black. The eye dropper in the middle is for mid-tones or grays. Using this one can be tricky, since photos may not contain any gray, but the white and black eye droppers should do the trick for you.
Then just close out of the curves box and you're done! Now the photo looks so much brighter and more natural.
